Slimquick and Depo-Provera

I hope this is the right topic.

Anyways i was wondering if anyone is taking Slim Quick (the new diet pill) and is also on Depo-Provera (birth control shot). I was wondering if anything counteracts with one another???

I wondered the same thing.  I called the 800# for Slim Quick Labs, the lady told me that Slim Quick will not counteract birth control (I'm on Estrostepp).  But I called my GYN just to be safe.  She wouldnt give me a straight answer.  She said she "disapproves of weight loss pills and that ANY drug you add to your body could counteract ANY medication you may be on."  I kept asking her specifically about Slim Quick and birth control but she kept dodging the question.  I think either (a) she doesnt know for sure or (b) she was just trying to dissuade me from taking any weight loss pills - but that is just my opinion. I decided to take Slim Quick anyway since she didnt give me a definite "No" (been on it for a week now.

Try asking your GYN what s/he might think if you are still unsure.  

Hope this helps.

PS: If you do talk to your GYN and she says to definitely NOT take slim quick, let me know!! Thanks! :)

I have been looking for the same answer. Does it or doesn't it??????
I'd rather stop the weight loss than get pregnant, but i haven't found anything relating slim quick to birth control.
I am dying for this answer since I just started today taking slim quick and I've been on birth control...
Please if any one got a definite answer for that, share!!!

i was also wondering the same thing. ive been wanting to use Slimquick Cleanse first, since it jump starts the weight loss. I called the planned parenthood center where i got the depo and the nurse told me its fine to take. the cleanse says it gets rid of toxins in the body and stuff so i wondered if it would flush out w.e hormone was in the injection and she said it would not and to go ahead and start if i wanted to. Hope this helps.

Hey guys,
I am taking birth control and slim quick currently. I took it once before and the only side effect I got was I was a little jittery, and I broke out a bit.. but the two didn't really interfere. I did not ask my GYN about this even though I should have, so if you guys get a definite answer that would be amazing!

I am a little nervous about taking the two together    :- /
